Re: Bighorn Fire

Saw tons of smoke today for the first time in quite a while. Looked like it was coming from Sabino Canyon.

Re: Two Fires In NW Tucson

Webcams from Summerhaven. The camera at the top of Oracle Ridge by the Control Road turnoff shows the fire coming over Red Ridge and up Oracle Ridge. I don't know if there will be another picture from that camera... https://www.windy.com/-Webcams/United-States/California/Loma-Linda/Mount-Lemmon-Fire...

Re: Rincon Peak cairn destroyed

@chumley
It was gone when I was there on March 7. I don't know how someone would have the energy to start taking down a massive pile of rocks after all of that climbing...

Re: Two Fires In NW Tucson

@SpiderLegs
Has it crossed over to the south side of the ridge?

Miller Creek/Rincon Peak TH access

I haven't been out there in a couple years, but it's usually seemed manageable with 2WD unless there's a lot of water. However, the SNP visitor center said that it's gotten much worse over the last 18 months... Has anyone been out there recently?

Re: Your workout hike?

I only "work out" to get in shape for other hikes, but Pusch and Wrightson are my go-tos depending on the season.

Re: An Alpine Symphony

Glad you enjoyed it! I thought it went well; one of my favorite programs here. Had a conference call with JLG today and he seemed really happy with the performances.

Re: An Alpine Symphony

I'll be playing too. Regrettably, there's not a "through the shindaggers" or "Sabino Canyon tram on a weekend" section, but I hope it might speak to a few AZ hikers anyways...

Re: Finger Rock Fire

Looks like it got Linda Vista, the nice flat area with the turnoff down across the canyon to Finger Rock, and maybe .5 miles of trail below that point. Kind of nerve-racking to watch, but judging by how this is being handled by authorities, it's perhaps for the best. The map for anyone curious: http...

Re: Finger Rock Fire

Just an hour or two ago, I didn't see anything in Finger Rock canyon at all. The few plumes I saw were very small and only in Pontatoc Canyon. The pictures on the second site you posted (the first photo in particular) look like it quite possibly reached all the way over the ridge into FR Canyon, pos...

Re: Finger Rock Fire

Does anyone know whether it's reached any of the three trails in the area? It looks like Pontatoc Canyon Trail will be impacted, but I'm not sure about Pontatoc Ridge or Finger Rock. Today after the rains it just looked like a little bit of smoke on he north side of Pontatoc Canyon, but I didn't get...

Re: Pusch Peak Bees

I climbed Pusch yesterday morning and saw some suspicious bees, but they didn't give me any trouble. I'd still be really careful on that trail. Details are in my 7/5 triplog... http://hikearizona.com/trip=119227
